Denard Robinson was a high-profile quarterback at Michigan, but he wasn't spotted much during the first half of the Jaguars' season.
After spending the first half of the season in relative anonymity, he's back in the news again now that he has been promoted to the backup running back spot behind Maurice Jones-Drew.
"He gained our trust as far as ball security and he had a really good week of practice before the San Francisco game and we said, 'All right, let's get him in there and see what he can do,'" head coach Gus Bradley said.
Robinson had four carries for 15 yards against the 49ers and offensive coordinator Jedd Fisch said the plan is to get Robinson more carries as the season progresses, writes the Florida Times-Union's Vito Stellino.
